The O2 is a high quality event space with easy access for our attendees who travel in from all over the UK. The staff are very helpful and professional, in particular The O2 project managers who work with you on any event.

We have seen our event grow from 2,000 attendees back in 2008 to over 4,000 in 2014 and the knowledge that we are able to grow our event with the flexibility of the arena is a significant factor for us going forward.

The O2 enables St. James’s Place to deliver a high quality conference in a modern and flexible space. It is our venue of choice for our annual conference.’
